Poster Boy: Remixing Subway Ads

Poster Boy: Remixing Subway Ads

  • 25 september 2008

Poster Boy is a notorious street artist that remixes ads in New York City subway stations. Using simple tools – mainly just a razor blade, he cuts out images and text from advertisements, recontextualising them into a new hybrid artwork. The pieces generally have a critical edge to them, making comments on the state of society and on the advertisements themselves.

A manifesto from Poster Boy’s Flickr page:

Eventually I will stop this art form. By that time I hope that I’ve inspired enough people where I don’t have to participate in order to see the change that is “needed”. I always encourage people to take matters into their own hands. So pick up a razor and reclaim your visual territory.
